RACE, CULTURE & IDENTITY
We begin our #100Days4Kids by looking into a critically important set of factors that play a significant role in the development of any child – the understanding of their culture and ethnicity. Children who go without this understanding can often grow up lacking a true sense of self. As children grow, knowing and embrace their heritage helps instill pride that produces confident adults.
It is the responsibility of all members of society to work toward the shared goal of advancing the fundamental rights and needs of children. Children’s rights belong equally to each and every child, regardless of race, color, age, disability, gender, familial status, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, language, religion, nationality ethnic or social origin, political beliefs, citizenship, or an other status or condition in life.
